The passing of a rogue extraordinaire [Jul. 24th, 2011|11:15 am]

 The passing of a one of a kind Rogue

It breaks my heart to announce this but this world has lost a most amazing and much loved Rogue. John Broadfoot passed away last night at 1:10 am eastern time. He is with his best friend Lori Stipe Russell, aka our own Allie Sutherland again, as much as we wish he wasn't.

Please continue to send your prayers and strength for his wife, Amy, as she will need them to help her through this. For those who know the family, condolence messages are wonderful and appreciated but please allow them the space and time needed to deal with all of this.

At this time no arrangements have been made, but I promise to update everyone here with the information as soon as I know.

Please light a candle and send him off with light and love.

Thank you for all the prayers and support of the past few weeks. It has meant more than words can say.

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines! [Jan. 22nd, 2010|07:41 pm]
[mood |excitedexcited]

Merry Measure is starting out 2010 in style!

First out, we'll be playing at ReenactorFest in Wheeling at The Westin North Shore hotel on Saturday Feb. 6th. Admission is $15 for a one-day pass, but you get a lot of value for that- seminars, a dealers hall, demonstrations and performances by other musical guests. Our shows are scheduled for 12:45 and 5:30.

We encourage everyone to come visit us at the 2010 Chicago Maritime Festival - February 27th at the Chicago History Museum. As usual, all three of us will be working the Crew and singing in the All-Hands as well as the special super-sekrit Sunday afternoon Shanty Sing at a location to be disclosed only to festival attendees. Enjoy classes and concerts by international maritime artists as well.

We start the rev-up for St. Patrick's Day on Saturday March 13th at Duke's Alehouse and Kitchen (Formerly Duke O'Briens) in Crystal Lake IL. After all, you need to start drinking early (I guess). Great food, Great beer, Great Music (and lousy parking). We;re on from 5-9PM.

Then on Wednesday March 17th from 4-6 PM at Durty Nellie's in Palatine IL. Once again, we're thrilled to have an early enough slot where we can all be out of there before the "Plastic Paddys" show up after work!

And look in the upcoming issue of Renaissance Magazine for a review of 'Faire Warning'. Sure, she hated the first song and got the whole 'Merry Measure' and 'Minstrosity' thing terribly confused, but hey - it's publicity!

Tee Morris and Sonic Boom. [Jan. 7th, 2010|11:57 pm]

[mood |sadsad]

Tee Morris lost his wife suddenly this week. He now has a young daughter to raise on his own in these tough economic times. If you remember Tee from his time at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, or if you've read and enjoyed his books, or listened to his podcasts, or if you just have a buck or two that could go to help out in his time of need, please chip in what you can.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Katelyn Memorial Food Drive a success this past weekend at the Maryland Renaissance Festival.

Over 300 pounds of food and $300 were donated to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank in Katelyn's name.

Thanks to all of you, we were able to honor Katelyn in a way that was very fitting with her generous nature.

Huzzah and Well Met!

As many of you know, we lost a dear friend and wench of Local 42 in this past off season "Kathleen Martin, or Katelyn as she was known at faire. Katelyn was a generous soul that will be dearly missed.

Food collection will occur outside the Season Pass Holder Gate from just prior to gate opening until noon. The food collected will be donated to a food bank in Katelyn's s name.

So please, take the time to grab a couple of things from your pantry this Saturday and bring it to faire to donate in Katelyn's name.
